Is it just me or has this forum gotten less active recently?
I think I know what @SpooPoker will be giving out as stocking stuffers this year...
Croc! Probably nile, I'm gonna go with a neck cut?
As far as I can tell, it means 'of velvet (from) Pontoglio' - a town in Italy known for its sumptuous velvet fabric manufacture.
Polo Ralph Lauren vest, made of Pontoglio Velvet.
Or Pontoglian. Or something.
Welllll that's badass.
My username comes (originally) from the name of a lake in South Africa: Lake Chotiari. ('chott' means lake in Afrikaans). I read about a project to drain the lake in an engineering magazine at a job I had once long ago. I went by 'chotiari' for years, and then it gradually got shortened to 'choti' and then hack-pluralized to 'chotii'. Some places, it's 'chotiiii'. On my birthday last year, it was chotXLVIII. The year I turned 30...it was X rated.
It seems the word means something in Hindi - 'little' or 'small'. Which also applies.
All available. Crappy pics (well, even crappier than usual, it's a gloomy afternoon here)
Oxxford Carroll & Co pure cashmere. Approx 42S. Quite a surprising find round here.
Shirts: Dege & Skinner bespoke (15.5, shorter than usual arms), Prada (15), short sleeved T&A bespoke (around 15 I think)
Couple of ties. The Kilgour is weird, slubby and quite a stiff texture - wtf is verona? PZ is wool and gorgeous so actually that's probably NA.
First Oxxford item I've seen. Content unknown, but probably either wool or a high% wool blend. Price on it was $25 (they do so love their Fashion Focus thing), so I didn't buy it, but I'm willing to proxy. No size tag. I 'measured' ptp with my hand and it's about 25" across. I didn't see any damage anywhere.
I really dig the Fisherman's Blues. My shitty band plays that sometimes. Would have dug finding that album.
I'm missing the reference. A league of their own, I get, but....?
Alden for BB shell. Worn only a few times, but old enough to have faded to a lovely reddish brown patina.
Ahh damn, text didn't show up. He tells the ump he looks like a penis with a hat on. The shearling looks, uhh, mushroomesque.
More loot from yesterday.
Red Wing work shoes for someone with flippers... 14 D
Rooster Wool Paisley
Kelty MG Convertible Pack
Scotch & Soda Nautical Shorts (cotton/linen -30W)
T&A (sure wish I'd noticed the stain...)
REI Midweight fleece (Medium)
Patagonia for New Belgium Brewing Co -Medium
"vintage" Burberry (~42 Long)
Hickey Freeman bespoke (~49/50 Reg)
